Missile Defence System: US Decision (18 Apr 2000)

Lord Jenkins of Putney: My Lords, will the Minister urge the Government to discourage the American Government from proceeding along the lines of a national defence system?

Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review (12 Apr 2000)

Lord Jenkins of Putney: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that the very process of expressing a desire to move in the direction of banning would of itself create the situation that the Government desire and make it an obviously sensible and, indeed, inevitable and right thing to do? Unless that is done, the feeling will persist that nuclear weapons are not quite as bad as biological and chemical weapons and do...

Sellafield: Thorp and Mox Plants (20 Mar 2000)

Lord Jenkins of Putney: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they are hoping to make substantial progress towards world nuclear disarmament at the coming United Nations NPT Review Conference in New York and how they propose to avoid the procedural discussions which are reported to have nullified the recent Geneva Conference.

Nuclear Disarmament (28 Feb 2000)

Lord Jenkins of Putney: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that Answer. Is it not the case that there is evidence from the Geneva conference that the discussion of procedural issues is used for the purpose of not arriving at any decision of substance and progress towards nuclear disarmament? Is it not necessary for my noble friends in the Government to take some exceptional steps to avoid that; for example,...

Lord Jenkins of Putney: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that free admission to their own property is the right policy to adopt in this connection? Does he also agree that, while trustees must make their own decisions, they can be encouraged one way or another to adopt free admission? That policy has been an immense success and has increased access to museums and galleries. It would be a great pity to limit it...

Lord Jenkins of Putney: My Lords, is my noble friend aware that not all of us share the gloomy view about the future of this House just expressed on the Opposition Benches? Some of us are quite hopeful and optimistic. To that extent, perhaps the Government may feel assured.

Public Lending Right Funding (8 Feb 2000)

Lord Jenkins of Putney: My Lords, in considering this matter, will the Government take account of the fact that in this country more books are borrowed and fewer books are bought than in many other countries? We have a higher proportion of borrowing than most countries. In those circumstances, the average income per book is probably much lower in this country than in others. Totals on this issue could be deceiving....
